.1 PRACTICAL INSTITUTION.
Tiic Oregon Agricultural Collego
is thoroughly a practical institution.
It aiuia to give its students a practi
cal education an education fornso.
It does not neglect the aesthetical
uor tho mental sciences, but every
thing that is tanght is intended to
havo a direct bearing on tho actual
condition of life. Tho merits of the
institution are not yet Jolly known
throughout tho state. That this is so
is manifested in tho surprise shown
by visitors "at the scope, equipment
aud thoroughness of tho school. The
various departments aro presided
over by more than twenty professors,
all thorongh masters of the different
branches, and efficient educators.
Tho buildings and apparatus aro all
of modern stylo and first-class in
overy particular. Corvallis Gazette.
"A pratical education for ose!"
in farming, for tho mechanics, for
horticulture, for architecture, for
teachers of our pnblic schools? Xot
a bit of it. Tho Gazette fails to
jKMnt out n singlo instance in the line
of usefulness which its name sug
gests. Unwittinclv however the
Gazette admits its unusefulness
when it says "the merits of tho in
stitution are not fully known through
out the state. Its merits as a prac
tical institution is not known
throughout the state for the reason
that it has no practical use, except
porhnps to those who wish to enter
the professions. That class is tho
only one which makes a practical
use of the education they get at the
college. This is doubtless the rea
son, and a good one it is, why the
merits of the institution are not fully
known throughout the state. It has
no merit for practical use. This col
lege has been in practical operation
for several years, grinding out its
gnsts of graduates for lawyers, doc
tors and preachers, but not a practi
cal farmer or mechanic has ever is
sued from out its walls. The name,
Agricultural college, is a misnomer,
a fraud and a deception. Under tne
guise of educating farmers and me
chanics for practical business in
callings, it is practically a Latin,
Greek, higher mathematics, gram
mar and philosophical institution,
such as prospective professional men
find useful to fit them for Those pro
fessions. This is one good reason
why its merits are not known. It
has no merits for practical instruct
ion for practical farmers or mechan
ics. It does however give practical
employment "to more than twenty
professors" good for professors.
It appears that visitors, after witness
ing the grand arrangement of
apartments, a display apparatus and
equipments and hearing tho lauda
tions of more than twenty professors,
aro surprised that the merits of
this institution are not known it is
a wonder, truly! Tho farmers and
mechanics throughout the state
know nothing of its practical us-o ex
cept once every two years several
thousand dollars are appropriated to
aid it, and that once every year they
have to pay a tax to help support it.
That is all they know about it And
when a bnmble and unpretentious
tax payer complains or a newspaper
has the courage to voice the sentf
ment of the taxpayers, condemning
such useless expenditure of their
money they are ridiculed, vilified and
damned as "old fogies, moss backs,
and enemies of education."
These modern soidesant, instruc
tors cf farmers and mechanics say to
all who object to being taxed for the
benefit of the few, 'Oh! you old
fogies, you moss back igno
ramuses, you are opposed to educa
tion." Verily, tho tyrants of old, in
in the holy name of religion, perse
cuted, even unto death the honest
inquirers after truth. So today, in
the holy name of education, the few
tax eaters denounce, ostracise and
vilffy those who dare question the
practical utility of such institution
crs. 'VVo ask who is benefitted by
Uhem Wo pause for reply. That
our position on this subject be not
misunderstood we emphatically
assert that the state has no constitu
tional right to appropriate one dollar
for educational nses except to the
public school where each and every
child of a certain age has as near as
practicable an equal opportunity to
receive its benefit. Therefore, the
legislature of this state has no au
thority to divert ono dollar of the tax
from the people of tho state to this
college, tho normal school or the
slate university. The state authority
extends no further in that direction
than to tho pnblic schools.
Yet tho school is a good one, us
good, perhaps, as any in tho state,
and, while it is fastened upon uh, all
who aro able to do so should take ad
vantage of the opportunity offered to
"igii a college education at bed rock
ltev.lt. L. Dilwortb, principal of
tholtoseburg Academy, is endeav
oring to put this institnlion upon a
permanent basis. This is a worthy
move and tho people who can, will
doubtless lend Mr. Dilwortb a help
ing hand. They will be called on to
snbscribo a nominal sum lo assist
him in this work. Porsons residing
in liosobnrg having children to odu
cato beyond what thoy can roceivo in
tho public school, ought lo help Mr.
Dihvorlh in this euterpriso. It will
bo far moro economical to establish
academical instruction here at home
than sending their children abroad.
The tnval sum of 10 n year to aid
this academy will bo a Iritle, com
pared with tho expenses incideut to
sonding ihem to Drain, Salem, Mou
moalh or elsewhere. Our business
mon too, will find it to their ad
vantage in a busiuesa point of view,
to subscribe to this fund.
A good high school established in
Kosebnrg will draw many pupils
from tho countiy here, thul without
such nu institution here, will go
elsowheie and draw largo sums of
money from thorn that would bo
spent here. Besides an aca:lmy
hero will bo u credit to our city, of
which every citizen will bo proud.
Twenty fivo or thirty yours ago,
Oregon was tho "laud of big red
apples'' because of tho size nod ruby
color of that fruit. '"Those big red
apples" wero as delicious in tlavor as
their exterior appearance whs invit
ing to tho eye, but seldom do we see
such fine, luscious apples uowadays.
Tho orchards of Oregon today pro
duce no such magnificent apples as
they did in the 50's. What is tho
cause? Isitintho lack of culturo
and care. The farmer of 30 years
took an intelligent interest in the
selection of his fruit and especial
pride in its cultivation. Fruit cul
ture is ono of the great coming in
dustries of Oregon Mid it will prob
ably be the leading industry in the
not very distant future. Southern
Oregon will in time bo ono great
orchard and garden. Its climate,
soil and natural adaptability to the
production of fruits and vegetables
will make it such. There are plenty
of counties that can raise the cereals,
but only a few favored spots are
adapted to fruits and vegetables, and
none can surpass Southern Oregon
in this particular.
Diversified farming, which includes
the production of fruits and vegeta
bles, is the goal to which the Oregon
farmer is steadily progressing. We
have here alluded to apples as not
comparing with the apples of 30
years ago, but when it comes to
peaches, big luscious peaches, South
ern Oregon can beat tho world. We
have noticed moro than onco the eye
of the visitor to Koseburg glisten as
he gazes upon the incomparable
peaches exhibited in our market, and
In response to inquiries made of
the S. V. Company by the miner's
association of California if some
amicable settlement of differences
regarding lands claimed to be min

railroad crant cin be made., W. H.
Mills, acting for tho company, says
that the com pan V is willing and
ready to snbmit tho question to two
commissioners, one to be chosen by
the company and the other by the
association, with the understanding
that their decision shall be binding
and irrevocable, provided, the associ
ation withdraws affidavits now on
file antagonizing the company's ap
plication for patents.
Very likely the difficulties in Ore
gon could bo set tie 1 in the same
manner if there was an association

A Chinese Version.
Cmc.uio, Aug. 2(5. Sam Moy, a prom
inent Chinese merchant ol Chicago, Bays
that a Chinese paper ho received gives
tho Chinese version of tlio uttackn upon
tho huglisli iind American missionaries.
According to litis Cliincsu paixsr, the tit
tuck (lovelojHiil u seriuua state ot allairs.
It was found that the basoincnts ol tho
mission houses wcro closely guarded by
tho disreputable Chinese hangereon of
tho missions. No decent Chinaman will
havo anything to do with 11 mission
The missionaries cannot talk the Ian
uuago. The Chinese in tho interior who
can talk "pigeon" or any foreign Ian
guago aro almost always young men who
havo run away to avoid punishment for
Ielty crimes or to shirk tho supiiort of
their families, going to some treaty ort
instead of tho mountainx, as tho fugitives
from justico for moro serious charges do
In time tho petty crime is forgotten or
compounded, and the fellow comes Imek,
but is regarded as a social outlaw, and
docs not find or want to find anything to
do in the way of work, more than enough
to keep him alive. The advent of tho
missionary opens a now field for the uu
scrupulous element. Tho inisxionary has
to havo au interpreter. Tito outcast is
ready to act and also to become a con
vert anything for nny cosy life. Ho
becomes a member of the missionary
stall and Itoiigohold. The missionary
wauls converts; tho Iiaiigeron want
some luxuries. There aro only two ways
to get (pnverts.in China. One is to hire
them; then you havo converts just as
long as thoy are paid. The other is by
buying or kidnaping children and keep
ing and teaching tltcui. Hiring converts
and buying childrcu aro expensive, but
the better class of missionaries, well sup
plied with money, will understand the
Chinese usages, and buy and show re
sults. Good missionaries don't allow any kid
napingr, but most of the missionaries,
while good eoplo themselves, don't
know how bad their native staff is. It is
the native staff, under the lead of tho
tough interpreter, which docs the kid
naping, and the missionaries aro fooled.
Tli is is the way it is done : One of the
interpreters sees a child, a girl, say 12
years old, and finds out she U not well
watched and cared for; that her parents
are poor or careless jvople not likely to
make much fuss at her disappearance,
lie inveigles the child into a visit to the
mission, and often force is used. Tho
missionary sees the child, and is told
some Ule by tho unscrupulous interpre
ter; that she wants to live at the mis
sion and be instructed, or some other in
vention which seems plausible to tho
ignorance and zeal of the missionary,
and something is added to show the im
portance of guarding the no- candidate
from recapture by tho relatives, who, the
niissioniry is assured, would do so to
prevent the perversion of the child's
As the mt&sionarv cannot talk to the
child he trusts his interpreter, who can,
and the child well, tho less the original
is followed here the better. The inter
preter practically gets the girl. She is
his slave for tho time being, aud he plays
the missionary to keep her safely ontof
eight until ho can sell her and cet the
money for her. lhen the missionary is
fooled again, and the pricess is repeated
as freijnenlly as possible. It is a great
industry for the unscrupulous interpret
ers, who live belter, have more pleasure,
and make more money with less work
under the protection of the mission,
than most of the good i-eople of their
The burning of the missions Ireed
some of the girl capti.es, who told the
story of their kidnaping, confinement
and the intli.jrii.ies to which they wero
Bobjected. Tho stories spread and
aroused the ferocity of all good people.
This started the great ri t, and the mob
attacked the missionaries and interpre
The best eop!e did not accuse the
miss'onaries of any intentional wrong,
and would not harm them, intending
only to send them away so they could
no longer be induced by tho wicked in
terpreters to help tlicnt in kidnaping
AH agreed ii was right to kill the hang
crson guilty of tho kidnaping, because it
is the law and custom that any one may
do so in China. The governor of Cokicn
sent 1000 soliders up the Min river to
iiucll the riots and restore order, but the
bandits joined with the ra'ibie and
whipped the soldiers. The soldiers lost
half their number and had to retreat.
At the time the paper was printed it was
said the whole section wa3 in the control
of the mob, and there was great fear that
elsewhere, where the people hear of the
stale of affairs at Ku Cheng, there wonld
be great trouble for the missionaries.
The foregoing is a free translation, not
literal, but mncli abbreviated, and pre
sents the Chinese view of tho situation.

lueodoro Diurunt. After a number hail
been excused for cause there remained
about 40 names in the iurv-box from
which it as hoped to com pie to the
panel. The morning was spent iu a
fruitless attempt to get an impartial
citizen to serve. Durrant looked on with
the calm and impenetrable demeanor
which has characterized him from the
beginning, and even from the time of
his arrest. Tho young man's perfect
control under all circumstances is be
ginning to attract fome admiration, be
ue innocent or guilty. He iiassed most
of the session in the perusal ol a docu
ment which was believed to be a new
affidavit tor a change of venue based on
the difficulty of obtaining a jury, which,
the defense will argue, indicates au over
whelming feeling in the community
against the prisoner. It is understood
that when the 12th juror is obtained.
court will adjourn at least one day to
allow District Attorney Barnes time to
prepare his opening address to tho jury.
